I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me….

and I think I like it…..

I Let Urban Body Laser have their way with me....
I have always been content with the way I appear on the outside.  I’m no beauty queen, but I’m happy about how I look.
Also, I have never been caught up with getting older.  Some of the most beautiful humans I have ever laid eyes on are in their 80’s.
So, I had never really thought of facial rejuvenation as something I’d be into.  I heard the ads that my friends from Urban Body Laser ran on the PEAK pretty much ever since we went on air.  But, I always thought they were talking to someone else.
Then, recently, I started noticing the effects my love for the sun has had on my skin.  I had so many crazy suburns on my face, one so bad I had to be hospitalized.  And it realized that my careless ways with the sun were catching up with me.
When I heard the Urban Body Laser ads about Photorejuvenation I started to pay attention.  The idea that maybe some of the spotting and redness on my face can be removed with light therapy began to appeal to me.
So I talked to my friend Janiece at Urban Body Laser.   I had my first photorejuvenation and skin tightening treatment just before the holidays.  I was a little freaked out.  ( The picture is of me, just before I had my first treatment )  I was afraid it would hurt like crazy ( it hurt a tiny bit ).   I was afraid there might be scarring ( there was none – in fact, Janiece made me look better when I left than I did when I walked in thanks to the Colorscience  mineral make up she hooked me up with ). Mostly, I felt refreshed and relaxed and like I’d been pampered.
The treatment comes with a excellent skin care line for use after to help nourish and protect the skin.  I love it.
I didn’t really notice a difference, but my friends did.  I have already started getting compliments on how great my skin looks.  After one treatment.  Crazy.
Next step, microdermabrasion.  It’s happening soon.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
We’ll be posting the before and after pics of me after I’ve had all the treatments.  But from what I’ve experienced so far.  It’s working.

Tattoos are form of personal expression. For many, meaningful imagery permanently transforms the body into a work of art, essentially making your skin a blank canvas. While some argue that tattoos are an addiction, others say it’s merely a passion for beauty and meaning.
However you view tattooing, those with their body fully inked will often tell you that one tattoo usually sparks the desire for another. So whether you have a full sleeve or are thinking it’s time to go under the needle, there are a few things you’ll want to consider beforehand — especially if you’ve always wanted to undergo laser hair removal.
We don’t have to tell you the benefits and ease of never having to shave again (because we list them here!). However, before you get your next tattoo, the hair removal process needs to be completed beforehand. Why? Because if the laser goes over your art work, it causes a very bad burn, followed by scarring and a total loss of colour.

The picture above is an example of how our medical estheticians have had to completely avoid this area of the ankle, while the rest of the leg is smooth and hairless. Unfortunately the most common areas of the body that people want laser hair removal also happen to be equally as trendy for tattoos, such as the back, legs, and arms. For guys who want a smooth, tattooed chest, we’re unable to perform a treatment without risking the integrity of your ink and safety of your skin.
Tattoos are not only a financial investment, but also a personal one, so taking care of it is of the utmost importance. For fresh tattoos, use Hydrogel to speed up the healing process and avoid infection. And now that summer is looming around the corner, make sure to purchase physical sunblock to keep the colour from fading. We love the Osmosis Shade SPF 30 as it’s designed for daily use and protects against the damaging effects of both UVA and UVB rays. This high-performance, luxurious sunscreen/moisturizer is ideal for all skin types and can be applied under makeup.

Tattoos are beautiful ways of artistry and self-expression, but if you’ve always wanted to try laser hair removal, you’ll want to consider the consequences if you do one before the other.
